Pure white tile 18x18 or larger

Can anyone recommend a durable pure white tile? I'm having a hard time finding a good tile. I have seen crystallized white tile, white onyx tile, polished white porcelain tile. I am concerned because all of these vendors are from China.

"Chinese" can be good, bad or indifferent. Try for a porcelean tile, if you can. When you see them, take ten or so of them and rotate them a bit and then look for excessive "lippage".....in other words, see if there is noticable variations in the size. This determins how well they will follow a decent grout joint. Also, look for curves in the tile.....for the same reason. Good luck!
